Welcome to Class 8!
Class teacher: Miss Highfield
Teaching Assistant: Miss Robinson
Children in Class 8 have had a wonderful start to life in KS2. They are working extremely hard and they are having lots of fun too.
Our topic for the autumn term is ‘the Rainforest’ which we are finding very interesting. So far, we have read some ‘Just So Stories’ by Rudyard Kipling and we have been linking our writing to the stories. We will also be reading ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ by Lynne Cherry.
In maths, so far this term we have been focusing on place value using lots of practical equipment to help us. We will also be studying addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as the term progresses. To help deepen our understanding further we will complete daily challenges linked to each topic such as puzzles and problems.
In geography, we will be developing our skills by studying rainforest around the world and we will be looking closely at the different layers of the rainforest.
Our art work is centred around the artist Henri Rousseau and we will be creating our own rainforest pictures using oil pastels.
In PE we are choreographing a dance in the style of the rainforest. We are going to perform, record and evaluate our final performance.
We have already started our STEAM project for the term. We are growing bean plants and we are documenting our plants progress through an online class blog using videos, photos and text.
We will keep you posted with all the exciting things we get up to this autumn term.
